    Well what is this please tell us,….my quick guess is that we are looking abnormally close to a Musk Ox,

    Hi John,

    You were right–how’d you know? Keep reading field notes–we’ll have more trivia contests in the near future. And consider sending your best arctic-themed photo for our calendar contest–prizes there, too!
